Disney Might Be Sending Three Highly Anticipated Movies to Disney+ Instead of Theaters

You might have some great new movies to watch on Disney+ in the near future!

With the changing landscape for theatrical movie releases, Disney is reportedly considering putting three highly anticipated live-action remakes on the streaming service instead of in theaters.

Deadline reports that films being discussed for the movie to Disney+ include Cruella, Pinocchio, and Peter Pan and Wendy.

Cruella is a live-action re-imagining of 101 Dalmatians starring Emma Stone as the iconic villain. Pinocchio will be directed by Robert Zemeckis and star Tom Hanks as Geppeto. The upcoming Peter Pan and Wendy film will featured Yara Shahidi in the role of Tinker Bell.

The outlet reports that some of the movies might be released at a premium charge, the way Disney released Mulan on the streaming service. The upcoming Pixar movie Soul will be released to subscribers for free next month.

Disney movies were trending on Twitter last weekend after someone asked a viral question.

Disney Movies Trend on Twitter After Someone Asked Which Movie Has Worst Soundtrack

You might notice that some of the top trends on Twitter right now are the titles of Disney movies and it all has to do with one tweet.

Twitter user @iambrattyb launched a poll on late Friday night (November 13) and said, “one soundtrack has to go.”

Four Disney movies were included in the poll: Aladdin, Lilo and Stitch, Mulan, and Hercules. At the time of this posting, over 200,000 votes have been cast and Lilo and Stitch has the most votes with 45.5%.

“there is one very clear answer yall better not disappoint..” the Twitter user wrote in response to the original tweet.

Lilo and Stitch is the only one of the four movies that is not known for its original music. This movie heavily features the music of Elvis Presley while the other films are known for original songs like “A Whole New World,” “Reflection,” and “Go the Distance.”

Lilo and Stitch does feature the original songs “He Mele No Lilo” and “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride,” though the lyrics are in Hawaiian. People on Twitter wants haters to admit they just can’t sing along to the lyrics!

There was actually some huge Lilo and Stitch news on Friday.

Raya and the Last Dragon is coming!

The highly anticipated movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios, featuring Kelly Marie Tran as the voice of Raya, is set to open in U.S. theaters on March 12, 2021.

Here’s a plot summary: “Long ago, in the fantasy world of Kumandra, humans and dragons lived together in harmony. But when an evil force threatened the land, the dragons sacrificed themselves to save humanity. Now, 500 years later, that same evil has returned and it’s up to a lone warrior, Raya, to track down the legendary last dragon to restore the fractured land and its divided people. However, along her journey, she’ll learn that it’ll take more than a dragon to save the world—it’s going to take trust and teamwork as well.”

Disney Pixar's 'Soul' Is Skipping Theaters & Heading to Disney+ This Christmas (At No Extra Charge!)

Disney Pixar‘s Soul is officially going straight to streaming.

The anticipated film is no longer getting a theatrical release, and will instead debut exclusively on Disney+ on Christmas Day (December 25) at no extra charge, THR reported on Thursday (October 8).

“The animated tentpole had been set to croon its way into theaters on Nov. 20. The decision to send the movie to Disney+ both underscores the precarious nature of moviegoing amid the ongoing pandemic, and the importance of Disney+, which has amassed more than 60 million subscribers,” THR reported.

The movie’s arrival to Disney+ also differs from the launch of Mulan, which came at a premium price.

“In markets where Disney+ isn’t available, the movie will be released theatrically. Dates are to follow,” THR adds.

Here’s a plot summary: “Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.”

The movie features the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Questlove and Daveed Diggs.

The upcoming movie just recently debuted a new trailer and poster – check it out now!
